**POSTPONED** Art Wolfe - Wild Elephants

**POSTPONED** Celebrating renewed efforts to empower local populations to safeguard elephants’ survival

We are canceling all author events through the end of March, due to the public health advisory for the COVID-19 virus. 

We hope to reschedule as many of these and other events as we can after this crisis is over.

The store remains open for normal business during regular hours. It will stay open as long as possible. We believe the shopping environment in our stores is safe for both our employees and customers.

Legendary for their size and intelligence, elephants are one of the most charismatic of megafauna.

That they are under siege from poachers is no secret, and the rapidity of their declining numbers is horrifying. However, amidst the steady stream of bad news, all is not lost.

Ivory prices are declining, global education seems to be succeeding, and recent government crackdowns are beginning to stem the flow of illegal ivory.

While Wild Elephants features photographs of both African and Asian species, the emphasis is on the African savanna or bush elephant. Samuel Wasser‘s informative text focuses on his current groundbreaking research on the impacts of the illegal trade in elephant ivory along with legal culling practices as a means of population control of this highly intelligent, tightly knit social species.

Award-winning photographer Art Wolfe has worked on every continent and in hundreds of locations over his forty-year career. His stunning images interpret and record the world’s fast-disappearing natural treasures.

Wild Elephants is a celebration of these wondrous gentle giants, of the renewed efforts countries are taking to protect their natural heritage, and of what we can do to empower local populations to safeguard the survival of a magnificent species.
